FPL: Double Digits For Must-Have Dennis (GW12)

By: Watford FC Staff

There were points-hauls all over the pitch for the Golden Boys on Saturday after their thrilling 4-1 win over Manchester United at Vicarage Road, with goals and assists in every position in Fantasy Premier League.

Emmanuel Dennis is quickly establishing himself as a must-have on FPL, with his third double-digit return in Gameweek 12. Priced at just £5.3m, the Nigerian is the most valuable forward in the game, with 10.2 points per million.

He’s clearly caught the eye of managers too, with over 100,000 already transferring him in for Gameweek 13 following his 14-point return last weekend.

João Pedro (£5.4m) is off and running in the top flight following a goal against the Red Devils. The Brazilian came off the bench to make an impact and was rewarded with two bonus points and a seven-point total. There’s plenty of competition in the front three meaning the 20-year-old isn’t guaranteed a start against Leicester City on Sunday, but he has already proven he can be dangerous off the bench if called upon.

In the defence, Kiko Femenía (£4.3m) added another assist to his tally and looked bright going forward against Manchester United. Dealing with Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial on his flank and sparking several attacks, the full-back also won back possession for João Pedro’s goal. The Spaniard provided for Ismaïla Sarr (£6.0m), in similar fashion to their exploits as a duo last season, and was a creative threat throughout.

Between the sticks, Ben Foster was unlucky not to claim clean sheet points after a terrific display in goal, denying Rashford, Ronaldo and co. on numerous occasions. Foster didn’t leave Vicarage Road without a points return however having assisted Dennis for the fourth Watford goal, collecting three of his five points as a result.

With a penalty save and goal contribution in back-to-back games now for the 38-year-old, it’s a no-brainer to bring him in with his value at just £4.1m.
